Abie Philbin Bowman
Who is Abie Philbin Bowman?
He is the writer/director/performer of Jesus: The Guantanamo Years, which was staged in 2006 in the Project Arts Centre and the Underbelly as part of the Edinburgh Fringe. The show was widely reported in the media and sold out - The Scotsman referred to him as "the face of this year's Fringe". In 2007, the show toured to London's West End, Jimmy Tingle's Off Broadway Theater in Boston, theatres across Ireland and the World Performing Arts Festival in Lahore, Pakistan. Performances in Belfast in Autumn 2007, were boycotted by Ian Paisley's Democratic Unionist Party.
Philbin Bowman followed this up with further performances at The Underbelly for the 2008 festival, as well as his show Eco-Friendly Jihad. In November 2008 he began working in radio full-time. On the night Barack Obama was elected US President, Philbin Bowman interviewed the National Membership Director of the Ku Klux Klan on Irish radio station, i102-104. Later that month, he began hosting the main talk show - The Third i - on their sister station, i105-107. He hosted the Third i until May, 2009. He then returned to comedy and resumed touring 'Eco-Friendly Jihad', using the tag line 'The comedy show bin Laden took seriously', following an audiotape - allegedly by the Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden - which blamed the US for climate change.
